NOT SO FUNNY, MR AMERICA
Much has shaped our societal acceptance of violence against women.
From the Statute of Anne, to popular literature (Blackstone)
These days, Hollywood films and the music industry objectify women. We, as viewers, partake in a passive desensitsation process, (Andrea Dworkin and Catherine Mackinnon).
This has furthered the patriarchal chauvinistic view of women that currently exists.
DV is allowed to flourish under the banner of comedy.
American sitcoms such as Family Guy and American Dad are sexist and continue to devalue women
This is another reason women simply put up with DV, as it is watered down and laughed at. …I say, not so funny Mr America !!
